Federal Contractors May Need to Disclose Emissions

The Biden Administration recently proposed a new “Federal Supplier Climate Risks and Resilience Rule” which would require major federal contractors to disclose greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks.  

The Biden Administration recently proposed a new "Federal Supplier Climate Risks and Resilience Rule," requiring major federal contractors to disclose greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks. 

The proposed rule could affect World Fuel customers with large federal contracts. Dr. Elise Fox, senior manager of sustainability solutions, World Kinect Energy Services, a division of World Fuel, provides an overview below. 

Under the proposed rule:
•    Federal contractors with more than $50M in contracts will have to disclose their Scope 1 and 2 emissions and any relevant Scope 3 emissions. They will also have to assess climate-related risks and have validated carbon reduction strategies.
•    Federal contractors with annual contracts from $7.5M - $50M will have to disclose Scope 1 and 2 emissions but will not have to assess climate risks or have a validated carbon reduction strategy. 
•    Federal contractors with annual contracts below $7.5M will be exempt. 

The proposed rule is open for the 60-day public comment period on the Federal Register, which closes on January 13, 2023. 

In addition to the proposed Federal Supplier Climate Risks and Resilience Rule, World Fuel customers may also be affected by the SEC's climate disclosure rule proposed earlier this year affecting publicly traded companies.

About Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)

An aircraft operator’s offsetting requirements under CORSIA can be reduced using sustainable alternative fuels. For MRV purposes, the sustainable alternative fuel needs to have a default emission value for each feedstock/production pathway.
